ADCO WELCOMES EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATORS!
An ADCO membership is essential for Registered Early Childhood Educators and other child care professionals whose career aspirations include owning or managing a child care program. If you want to be a leader in your field and in your community, you need to spend time with other leaders. ADCO members are leaders-- people who own and manage successful licensed child care programs and who make a difference through the daily operation of their programs, by coordinating charitable events such as ADCO's Kids Helping Kids Walkathon, and by working together and with all levels of government to expand and enhance the licensed child care services available to Ontario families. More than half of ADCO member owner/operators are RECEs.
There simply isn't another organization in Ontario that offers you the advantages that ADCO can. Not only will you receive your own subscription to Childcare Today magazine and a host of other exciting benefits and discounts, ADCO membership is an excellent way to get to know the owners and managers of licensed child care programs right across the province. They could even be prospective employers or business partners.
Why build your career at an independent licensed child care centre?Independent licensed child care programs, whether run as non-profits or as small businesses, offer RECEs a wealth of opportunities that larger institutional child care employers can't. Some of the benefits of working with an independent licensed child care program include: · You are an essential member of a smaller staff team where people truly care about you.· Your skills and ideas are valued and appreciated..· You have more autonomy over your classroom.· You have direct access to the boss, so can advocate more effectively for the children in your care.· You'll usually have better access to special needs supports, resources and equipment.· You'll usually have more opportunities to enhance the work environment and contribute to the centre's overall culture and quality.
